Overview : Didupe & ermai waterfalls lie in the base of charmadi ghat ( karnataka). Didupe falls is a stream of water falling from great height in one step and forms a decent pond structure in the base. Here, with little difficulty, you can go beneath the water fall and take a good bath. If you would like to swim, can spend some time swimming too. But the pond formed is not very wide and deep. Hence, expect less scope for good swimming. Ermai falls is multi level waterfalls and if you are little adventurous, then you can go and stand behind the water fall in the middle level. It is an amazing experience where you see water falls standing in the mid level.
